Eric in the Morning

Reviews For Eric in the Morning

It literally sickens me to listen to how Eric treats women. He thinks he’s superior. I will no longer continue to support a station that champions this sort of appalling behavior. It’s 2021!!!Time’s up! Kiss FM, on the other hand, feels like family. Listening to their show has literally gotten me through the lowest times of my life. They represent Chicago proudly. Shout out @fredshowradio
I’ve listen since I was a kid on the way to school with my mom, but I Wont be listening anymore. Show keeps going downhill, and it’s cringey to listen to eric constantly putting down others. Really makes me uncomfortable. Will never be the same without Melissa.
Melissa and Whip are the show. It’s never going to be the same. Good luck, you’ve lost a daily listener.


Love the show have listened for more than 20 years. Moved to Tennessee and listen to the podcast as often as possible. Keep it going. Thanks for making my day.
I miss Cathy and now that Melissa is gone, you have lost me. Violetta isn’t funny and Eric does mistreat and isn’t always nice to the females working there.
I have listened to Eric (and Kathy) for many years. I think I first started listening when I woke up early for school many years ago now. And it just became a part of my routine. I continued listening even after Kathy left as Melissa and Whip fit in seamlessly. I have always enjoyed Whip and Melissa as well. They have done a great job taking the spots of cohosts. I am sad to have Melissa go. She has been great and seems very genuine. I am not sure it will be the same anymore. Plus, I no longer feel I want to listen considering they don’t seem to value the staff, specifically the women who have worked there for decades. For the many loyal listeners, it has been a lot of changes (and drama) the last few years and Melissa leaving (or ousted as it really seems) is another. This, along with whatever happened with Kathy, has left a sour taste in my mouth...and many others. I trust they will lose many loyal listeners. I am sad for Melissa and disappointed in how it went down. Wishing Melissa all the best and hoping the rest of the team comes to their senses.
Can’t stomach listening to them anymore knowing that they have a sexist, misogynistic workplace that pushes out their female hosts! #teamMelissa
I have listened to this show for as long as I can remember. With the announcement about Melissa, I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. After her personal message it's clear they lied. No longer a relatable station except for Whip. I heard good things about 103.5 so trying that.
I started to sour in this show when they let go of Cynthia and Mel D but kept whiny Violeta. I found Mel D more genuine and funnier. Violeta, on the other hand, truly encapsulates the essence of a typical MEllennial: self absorbed and inane. Mel D could have been a better fit in the group bc she’s game to do almost anything, but they never realized her full potential. And since Melissa’s absence, I found myself tuning in less and less. I even stopped listening to their daily podcasts coz I, frankly, cannot stand Violeta’s whining. She’s like empty calories. Ever since Violeta joined the morning show team, I’ve rolled my eyes at her vacuousness so many times I feared I must have momentarily dislocated my eyeballs. Melissa was the reason I started listening to this morning show. Her humor is self deprecating at times, but she never compromised her self respect. And her being mathematically challenged is an adorable trait & something that connects her to others. That’s what Violeta lacks, she’s so self absorbed that she tries so hard to appear put together/perfect that she comes off as a hack. She also has this tendency to talk over others. Tuning out for now & I’ve unsubscribed from the podcast until Melissa’s return... that is if she ever returns. Otherwise, my time is better spent on listening to other podcasts.
I have listened to this morning program since day one. It has to be 25+ years. Even through the “changes”. It made my 90 minute commute to work easier. I recently moved to Missouri and missed it (home sick) and realized they have a Podcast. It gives me a piece of home. Thank you.
I haven’t lived in Chicago since I was 18. This keeps me connected and laughing every day!
I love listening to them every morning or listen to the podcast if I miss it in the morning. They always make me laugh and make my day! I love you guys! ☺️❤️

I moved away from the Chicagoland area two years ago and listen to this podcast every day still. They are always hilarious.
Keep up the great work. Never miss an episode!
So glad the podcasts are longer now. Love this show. Regardless of my travels, I listen to them everywhere. Staple in my morning!!!!!!
I love that you have this podcast. I listen to it Every. Single. Night. I like that you made it an hour long over versus the original half hour or used to be. Keep doing this please! It’s a great way to catch the show even though I can’t listen live in the morning. And Melissa ALWAYS has me laughing!!
Excellent show- 5 Stars for the full show! Living in Iowa, I have to get my waking up in Chicago fix. Love you guys!
I used to listen to Eric and Kathy in my car during my hour plus commute to work. I was transferred and now spend only a few minutes in the car and found myself missing this show in the mornings until I remembered that there's a podcast! Now I listen to the shows while I'm at work and it helps get me through the work day! Keep up the great work and hysterical shows Eric, Kathy, Melissa, and Whip!
In Chicagoland area and America. Used to not find it funny... Now I came around and I enjoy it. Actually I chose Eddie and Jobo back in the day but I came around, right?? Ehhhh, but I digress. You guys rock. Whip and Melissa😍 too
Did they really just do a comparison of cheeseburgers vs patty melts for the second time in less than 6 months ?
Great show I listen every morning. Wish they podcasted EVERY show though.

I love this podcast! I listen on my hour drive to and from school! My only complaint is I wish they would load the podcasts a little more regularly.
I love the show and the podcast. The morning crew had an awesome MIX.
Make sure the files have Album Art before uploading, as the iTunes feed isn't doing it correctly! Love the show, regardless. Keeps me sane on my trips to the GF's house.
I love Eric and Kathy. I listen to it everyday at work.
Great to listen to any time of the day
These guys are the best
Listen to this podcast daily. Eric Kathy Melissa and whip make me laugh so hard my coworker thinks im loosing it. Great job guys!!
I love listening to Eric and Kathy in the mornings. They are so much fun and make bad mornings into good ones.
I used to listen to Eric & Kathy growing up in Chicago and have always loved getting the day started with all their fun! So great to get to keep up via podcast while living in CA now. Love Eric, Kathy, and Melissa!!
I love being able to listen to highlights from my favorite morning show at my convenience. I'm not always up that early to hear it live. Great work and keep it up!
listen each monday ---- love the podcasts incase i miss one.


As a commuter, the podcast gives me something to look forward to on the long drive home! It sooo nice to be able to drive home after an awful day laughing! :)
I listen to them every morning. Absolutely hilarious.
As a lover of the show living in Australia, I really love the podcasts as I can listen in Australian mornings. I feel like I'm listening to my friends in Chicago, catching up on locAl gossip and news. Really love. GreAt for homesickness. Happy that Maynard Mondays and Sharp Attack are included. It is a fun way of being a Chicago sport fan to hear that.
Luv E&K every morning....listen to this anytime I need lough
So good I wish it was longer. Love the "Mix"
I love u guys. You are funny and I actually do learn things. Keep it up! :)
Loved listening to Eric and Kathy when I was in Chicago, the podcasts allow me to listen from my iPhone from St. Louis. Great morning pick me up. Only wish it was the full length of the show!
I love Eric & Kathy! This is such a funny show. I listen to it every morning and especially look forward to Patrick Kane party watch!
Commute into the city 2 days and the podcast allows me to catch up on days I don't come in. Glad length of podcast was extended on 5/3/10 when Fifth Third took over. Love the show and the chemistry between everyone.
I love listening to them on the radio. I'm listening to them now!


I love the Eric & Kathy podcast. I'm living in Indiana now, but I can still keep up with my favorite morning show... anytime or any place on my iPhone!
I can't find a better show to listen to.
I always listen to them while I get ready for the day!! They always let me leave my house happy and hopful for a great day!
I absolutly love this podcast. It is just the right lenght, the right price (free), and the right radio personalities. They put tons of funny moments from the show, and they never dissapoint me. Now I can listen to Eric and Kathy whenever, wherever.
